Thanks Con

You have done a great job for us from the very first contact to the final wrap up and we are delighted with the service you provide. Thank you.

Steve Clark – Performance Keys

Without question I believe Steve and Con have acted in my best interests and not the lender’s in terms of finding the right finance for me, whether it is personal or business. In these days when people move around so much it’s been reassuring to know that Steve and Con have always been there delivering a great personalized service at all times. They are very up front, knowledgeable, and honest with you when advising what you need in terms of financiers/banks requirements and don’t give you any spin. Their word can be trusted which means a hell of a lot these days.

I have been extremely impressed with Steve and Con’s knowledge within the finance industry as they have displayed skills and provided insights that I have rarely received from many brokers and finance specialists I have dealt with in the past. Steve and Con have always showed an extremely high level of professionalism when dealing with myself and my clients. Their attention to detail and immediate responsiveness to queries or requests is of a very high standard.

Cameron and Terena Kennedy

We have had the pleasure of working with Steve Cooke, Con Lagos and their support team for the past 6 months and have no hesitation in recommending them to any potential customer. We had quite a complex refinancing situation as well as wanting to set up a mortgage from our Self Managed Super Fund. We had no experience with the later and could not have undertaken this project without the advice and commitment that Connect Finance provided. The refinance of our home loan went very smoothly but the SMSF loan was a difficult process however Steve and Con kept us in the loop every step of the way and went beyond in helping us settle on settlement date. Their communication skills are to be commended and the whole business conducts itself very professionally. They really know how to get things done in the quickest amount of time.

It has been a privilege working with them.

Kerryn, Rob and the little ones 

OMG. What an amazing positive experience it has been dealing with Steve and Con. “NO” is definitely not a word Steve and Con include in their vocabulary!

Nothing is too hard for them and they strive to deliver nothing but excellent service throughout the entire process.

With the limited knowledge we both have on banking and purchasing a property we would never of been able to achieve our goal of purchasing our dream home without the expert advice and guidance of both Con and Steve.

We can’t thank you enough.
